Ok, One More

<a href=https://www.bitsmack.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Comics&file=index&action=comic&id=345>Today’s comic</a> is the last time I make fun of the N-Gage… unless I run out of comic ideas, then it’s POW! right in Nokia’s jaw. The wheel of interest is spinning once again, I’ve finally been able to identify all of my hobbies I switch between:
  1. new video games
  2. anime
  3. classic video games
  4. movies and TV on DVD
  5. import video games
  6. Heroclix, Magic, other non-video games
  7. RPGs
As you can see I live a very full and rewarding life. Anyway, yesterday I started surfing some import game sites and stumbled upon a few really cool games. Here’s some links so you can see that Japan gets a lot cooler video game stuff than we do. <a href=http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-r-70-2j8-4-5-77–15-space%2Binvaders.html>Space Invaders 25th Anniversary</a> <a href=http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-28-70-2kx-4-5-77-6-15-dragon%2Bwarrior.html>Dragon Quest w/ Sword</a> <a href=http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-70-2r2-71-r.html>Transformers (the original, not Armada crap)</a> <a href=http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-70-2oe-71-46.html>Mojib Ribbon</a> Continue reading "Ok, One More"


When I got back from New Orleans, I wasn’t expecting <a href=https://www.bitsmack.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Comics&file=index&action=comic&id=343>this.</a> The Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference was ok. There wasn’t anything there that would interest a normal person. However after hours, Microsoft knows how to throw a party. Thursday night they rented out the House of Blues and we had free drinks the whole night. The band was really good and the fake Blues Brothers even came out to sing a couple songs. Friday night not only was the House of Blues rented out, but the whole street was blocked off for Microsoft partners. This time the band was none other than Smashmouth. Afterwards we walked a couple blocks to Bourbon street. It wasn’t anything spectactular, but it also wasn’t spring break. All in all it was a pretty good time.

Failed N-Gage T-Shirts

In going along with the N-Gage bashing for this week comes this comic. And if you have nothing better to do with your time, check out the N-Gage website. There is a worthless TV ad that goes through various locations where the owner of a N-Gage got the "smackdown" on himself. And you can download worthless wallpaper with appropriate sayings.... And this is where I cried for help. Say what? Continue reading "Failed N-Gage T-Shirts"

N-Gage Joke-Off

Yesterday the worst <a href=https://www.bitsmack.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Comics&file=index&action=comic&id=341>portable system</a> in history was released. Remember this date to tell your grandkids. According to <a href=http://spong.com/index.asp?art=5632>this article</a> Nokia plans on selling six million units in the first two years. What the article does not mention is that 5.9 million will be bought by Nokia chief Ilkka Raiskinen’s parents and the other 100,000 will be donated to mentally handicapped children. The funniest thing is how gaming magazines and websites try to maintain their objectivity and pretend the N-Gage is a real console. They all know it sucks but they just won’t come out and say it. Honestly, I want to meet someone who bought an N-Gage, just out of pure scientific interest. It’d be like getting to meet Jack after he came home with magic beans. In other news the shirts have been ordered. We should get them in a couple weeks. Continue reading "N-Gage Joke-Off"
